54w ago - Sony Community Manager James Spafford has shared a fresh Tearaway video today inviting fans to unfold a new adventure this coming October 22 on PS Vita.

To quote: Tearaway will be available on shelves and on PSN October 22nd! We can't wait for you to get your hands on, and indeed in, our new game at the end of the year.

In Tearaway you'll journey through a vibrant, living papery world, with a plucky messenger who has a unique message to deliver - to you!

As the papery world of Tearaway unfolds in your hands, you'll be able to use your god-like powers to help your new messenger friend, iota or atoi, complete their very special delivery.

You'll uncover a magical dimension inspired by folklore, and built realistically from paper that unfolds and comes alive before your very eyes. As you explore this world you'll meet the papercraft creatures that live within it, help out strange new friends and encounter dangerous challenges.

We've designed the world of Tearaway to blend with our own through the unique features of the PS Vita, which allow you to help your messenger buddy to solve puzzles using the power of touch, literally breathe new life into this papercraft land, and reach up into the world using the rear-touch panel to see your fingertips appear inside...

54w ago - Sony Senior Social Media Specialist Rey Gutierrez is here with the new Sony PS3, PS Vita and PSN releases for the upcoming week today, as follows:

Cross-Buy Guacamelee! for PS3 and PS Vita on PSN this week. Guacamelee! draws its inspiration from traditional Mexican culture and folklore, and features many interesting and unique characters.

The game also blurs the boundaries between combat and platforming by making many of the moves useful and necessary for both of these.

The game features a down on his luck Mexican named Juan Aguacate, who sets out to save the world when El Presidente's Daughter is kidnapped by an Evil Charro Skeleton.

The story takes place in and around a small village in Mexico, and has the player travelling between parallel dimensions on his quest to rescue the girl he loves. Enjoy this week's The Drop.

Guacamelee! (Cross-Buy PS3/PS Vita) - Guacamelee is a Metroidvania style game with a light world/dark world component where you play as a luchador. The game can be played entirely cooperatively with the first player controlling Juan and the second playing a woman known as Tostada.

The combat consists of melee attacks, as the name suggests, such as punches, grapples and throws. There are also other moves you learn to...
 

Rumor: Sony Planning PlayStation 4 (PS4) Reveal in April / May 2013

54w ago - Just days after Sony officially launched the PS4 Web site, according to a rumor from PC Magazine (linked above) they are now planning a big PlayStation 4 reveal prior to E3 in April or early May 2013.

Below are the purported details, to quote: "Sony already revealed some PlayStation 4 specs at a February event in which the company unveiled the console's controller (pictured) and a stereo camera with motion capture capabilities, but not, to the chagrin of gamers everywhere, the PS4 itself.

But Sony may be parceling out information about its coming game console to build up buzz, according to the source. Some industry watchers anticipated another reveal or at least some PS4 news at last week's Game Developer Conference, but the company only tipped some details about the underlying hardware, Ars Technica reported.

GDC was probably the last big stage for the company to talk up the successor to the PlayStation 3 before the E3 gaming conference in June, unless Sony manufactures its own event. That's precisely what Sony plans to do, according to the source, who said late April/early May will be the likeliest timeframe for a full-blown launch of the PS4.
